Best answer as selected by question asker.
Usually the reaction of `NaNO_2 ` is made from the alkaline solution of `NaOH` . If we used `NaOH ` as the alkali solution the reaction can be written as:
`NaNO_2 + Zn + NaOH -> Na_2ZnO_2 + H_2O + NH_3`
NaNO2 reacts with Zinc powder in an alkali solution will produce the `Na_2ZnO_2` . `NH_3 ` is liberated in the reaction in the form of gas.
Answer: D.) `NH_3`
The balanced equation can be written as:
`NaNO_2 + 3 Zn + 5 NaOH -> 3 Na_2ZnO_2 + H_2O + NH_3 `
